Project Instructions

Paint dowel rod, wooden wheels and doll head. Use the end of the paintbrush to add dots to doll head. Let dry.

Glue dowel rod into holes in two stacked wheels to form the “trunk” of the tree. Let dry.

Cut several pieces of ribbon in four lengths. Trim ends in a fish-tail style.

Layer a few of the same size ribbon pieces, criss-crossing as you layer and staple together. This will keep the ribbons from moving around. Do this for each length of ribbon.

Punch a hole in the center of the ribbon pieces with a Crop-a-dile™.

Thread one of the longest ribbon pieces onto dowel rod and then a wheel. Continue adding the ribbon layers in decreasing ribbon sizes as you work up the tree "trunk". Add a painted wheel between layers. Use image as a guide.

Place on top of tree as a tree topper. Glue to secure, if desired.
